World Suicide Prevention Day

Thursday, September 10th marked World Suicide Prevention Day. Each year, the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) organizes the event along with the World Health Organization (WHO) as a co-sponsor. Above all, the purpose of World Suicide Prevention Day is “to raise awareness of suicide and suicide prevention”.

According to the IASP, more than 800,000 people die by suicide every single year. This breaks down to one person every forty seconds. Furthermore, “for every 1 suicide 25 people make a suicide attempt”. 108 million people are directly affected by suicide each and every year. This includes close family, relatives, and friends who are then in a high-risk group for suicide themselves.

In a video created by the IASP, they discuss easy ways to help those with suicidal thoughts. Specifically, they list community support, responsible and sensitive media portrayals, local education, and restricting the means as being incredibly important. By “stepping closer” to those around you, you can listen to and support them. Similarly, the video states that “sometimes all it takes is a smile” to make a difference.

You Are “Worth Living For”

On September 8th, Said The Sky released his long-awaited song and fan video titled “Worth Living For” with Olivver The Kid and Levi The Poet. This project was created in honor of World Suicide Prevention Day. Thus, the project focuses on the purpose of raising awareness for suicide and suicide prevention.

100% of proceeds from this song will go to To Write Love On Her Arms, which is a non-profit that focuses on helping those struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. Said The Sky also partnered with Songs That Saved My Life for the project.

A Heartwarming Video

A few months ago, Said The Sky made a post on social media asking for fans to email in video clips of things that made their life worth living for. As a result, hundreds of fans sent in their own videos. Clips included friends and loved ones hugging, dogs (naturally), nature, confetti, shows, and festivals. The final product is absolutely gorgeous and quite tear-jerking.

In hopes of creating something beautiful, I asked you to share the moments that make your life worth living for. This is what we made with those moments.

The lyric video, created by Emma Paige, starts off with a few facts and statistics about global suicide rates. Then, viewers see a DVD labeled “moments worth living for” slide into a DVD player before the collage of video clips starts. The video concludes by saying the following.
